How to Restore Faded Vinyl Shake Siding
Does your home’s shake siding look a little lackluster? This is a common problem, as age and wear will eventually take a toll on all types of house siding. However, there are ways to redeem this problem and return your home’s exterior to its former glory. If you’re looking for ways to restore your faded vinyl shake siding, consider the following options:
Wash the Siding
More often than not, faded vinyl shakes are not actually faded – they’re just dirty. Pollen, dust, and dirt can build up on siding over time and mask its vibrancy. Luckily, vinyl shakes are easy to clean. Just spray your siding down with your garden hose and use a soft bristled brush to scrub away any grime that’s collected on it.
Try a Commercial Cleaner
If there are stubborn stains on your vinyl shake siding, a stronger cleaning solution may be necessary. There are a number of commercial cleaning products available for vinyl siding, but some may be too harsh and damage the shakes. It’s typically best to check with a professional siding contractor and see what product they recommend.
Replace the Siding
If you’ve cleaned your siding and it’s still looking drab and faded, it may be time to replace it. While having new siding installed is an investment, choosing the right replacement option can ensure you won’t have to do it again for a long time. Continental Siding’s polymer siding, for example, is designed to withstand UV damage and will last for decades without fading or showing wear. To learn more, contact us today.
